Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War) (1936)
For Salvador Dali, using the term eccentric as a descriptor would be an overwhelming understatement. The Spanish surrealist was known for the striking -- and at times appalling -- images in his work as much as he was for his flamboyant lifestyle. These are two of his most famous pieces. One reflective on life in general, the other borne out of a country on the brink of inner turmoil -- much like Guenica my favorite Picasso.
